Bella Hadid, the kid sister of model Gigi Hadid, shows how it’s done in a stunningly seductive photo spread. But she had to go all the way to Germany to do it in the May issue of Glamour Germany. It’s the mag’s “body issue.” Bella reps it well.
The 19-year-old model is a mere 17 months younger than Gigi, but has her own unique look and style.
Although Gigi has gotten most of the publicity, Bella is quickly establishing her own celebrity identity as a model.
Both are the daughters of former Dutch model Yolanda Foster (nee van den Herik) and Beverly Hills real estate developer Mohamed Hadid. Their Palestinian and Dutch heritage give them their unique and exotic look.
Bella is more like her father, darker with raven black hair, which has helped her establish a separate identity from her fairer, blonde sister.
They both grew up in the celebrity spotlight. Mom Yolanda appears on the Bravo Network show “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”
In the issue, Bella also talks about her eating habits, makeup and modeling.
She was styled in a Euro-Goth look wearing mostly black, with accented-color jackets, skinny jeans, a micro-mini with a thigh-split and short shorts.
Bella also flashed some sultry side-boob.
She was signed by IMG Models two years ago and has been steadily building a portfolio.
She debuted her at New York Fashion Week in September 2014 for Desigual. Since then, she’s been a staple on the runway. Last year at NYFW she walked for such brands as Tom Ford, Diane von Fürstenberg, Tommy Hilfiger, Balmain and Marc Jacobs.
She closed for Jeremy Scott at the same show.
She debuted last December for Chanel’s Métiers d’Art show in Rome, along side Kristen Stewart and Johnny Depp ex Vanessa Paradis.
Both Bella and Gigi have drawn some social media heat from other models because of their celebrity connections. But there’s not doubt both have modeling cred all their own.
